Gone, but definitely not forgotten! America’s TV mom, Florence Henderson, died on Thanksgiving 2016, and now celebrities have come out in force to pay tribute to the beloved Brady Bunch star.
The actress, who played Carol Brady on the '70s hit show, passed away on Thursday, November 24, at the age of 82 after suffering heart failure.
As Us Weekly reported, her manager said in a statement that she was surrounded by friends and family after being hospitalized on Wednesday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
Her death has left a huge void in many people’s hearts, and Hollywood stars have been inundating social media to pay their respects to a woman who was clearly adored.
“Devastated,” wrote Maria Menounos. “She was just at my house-so vibrant-so vibrant - so wonderful-Such light in this world. I’m crushed.”
Barry Williams, who played her eldest son, Greg Brady, said: “Deeply saddened. Florence was one of the most gracious people I have ever known, Proud to call her Mom and life long friend. #RIPFlorence.”
